You do not need to have esxi to use vmware converter.

Please see my EE Articles

the biggest issue you are going to find, is a software product which is old enough to converft Windows 2000, support was removed from Converter 5.0 to handle Windows 2000.

So you may want to try v4.3, it would also be worth, searching for v4.0 or v3.0.
